Magento will not Save my Product Updates

The other day a client was having an issue with updating his products with alot attributes. He would hit the save button but nothing would change. It appears that his page would just reload.

To fix this issue we has to increase the max_input_vars in the php.ini file.

The default is 1000, so we updated the php.ini to 5000.

max_input_vars = 5000

After update this variable and restart php he was able to save his products updates.

One thing to remember, if you increase the value to much you will be using more and more memory. If you are on a system with limited memory, you might run into memory issues.
